I saw your post stating that you supply tools to machinists. I'm looking for a carbide end mill with a 60 degree included angle and 1/64" radius on the tip and was wondering if you might be able to supply this or direct me to a company that could. It will be used to cut/extend splines in an automotive axle using a vertical milling machine. Any help would be greatly appreciated, emj.

What you describe really wouldn't be a good idea for cutting splines.

You are much better off using a flycutter and single point HSS bit ground to the right profile...you can probably find an insert if you *need* carbide because of the hardness.

By trying to use an endmill "point", your active surface speed is going to be really low, your feed would have to be even slower.

Will do and thank you ma'am, emj.
